Far Cry 6, FIFA 2022, Back 4 Blood Lead PlayStation’s Top October Downloads, Full Top 20 Revealed

by Wesley LeBlanc on Nov 10, 2021 at 11:30 AM

October was a big month for video games in terms of releases. It saw new titles like Far Cry 6, Back 4 Blood, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and more hit the market. It’s no surprise that many of these debuts lead PlayStation’s top downloads for the month of October, either. 

PlayStation released the top October downloads for its multiple platforms today and at the number one spot in the United States and Canada is Far Cry 6, followed by FIFA 22 in second, and Back 4 Blood in third. On the EU side of things, it’s a touch different: to nobody’s surprise, FIFA 22 was the top download with Far Cry 6 in second and Back 4 Blood in third. 

Here are the top 20 October downloads for PS5 in the U.S. and Canada: 

  1. Far Cry 6
  2. FIFA 22
  3. Back 4 Blood
  4. Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles
  5. NBA 2K22
  6. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
  7. Madden NFL 22
  8. NHL 22
  9. Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
  10. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  11. Alan Wake Remastered
  12. Deathloop
  13. Riders Republic
  14. The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes
  15. Kena: Bridge of Spirits
  16. Diablo II: Resurrected
  17. Hot Wheels Unleashed
  18. Mortal Kombat 11
  19. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  20. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

As you can see in the list above, much of it is made up of new titles released in October or some titles released late in September, such as Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which launched on the 21st of that month. Also of note, titles like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy arrived near the end of October so there’s a good chance some of these titles might appear in the November top downloads list as well. 

The EU top 20 is largely the same, although a few surprises are in there such as Alan Wake Remastered sitting significantly higher at the sixth spot, and the inclusion of Resident Evil Village and Rainbox Six Siege on the list. 

For more information, you can check out the top 20 PS4 downloads as well as the top 20 PSVR downloads (which features Beat Saber at the top spot, likely due to its new multiplayer mode).

After giving those lists a look, be sure to read up on the six games PlayStation Plus subscribers get this month and then check out our thoughts on PlayStation’s top download last month in Game Informer’s Far Cry 6 review.
